I have a new daily habit of awakening 15 minutes earlier to enjoy the quiet over a glass of warm water with lemon juice in advance of coffee, breakfast, and the day’s rush. A dear friend taught me this simple trick, espousing the numerous health benefits from adding this one simple morning habit. My preference is the round Meyer lemon globe for its sweetness, and yet I’ve been searching for a still sweeter and milder juice. Urban foraging is much like beach combing. The search for treasures keeps one’s nose to the trail. I found it here in this variegated pink lemon from Rising C Ranch, sold at Bi-Rite Market in San Francisco where city dwellers go to EAT GOOD FOOD. Forage for yours at a winter farmer’s market or on-line at Ripe To You.
Thank you Cheryl! Lemons cheer up any place pretty quickly.
